Imagine the exciting anticipation of feeling your beach bag bumping against your hip, your sandals slapping against the already hot cobble steps with the echos bouncing off the street walls hastening your pace as you rush to meet a group of 8-10 friends for a private day cruise on the Alma Libra.
Imagine being greeted by the affable Captain Dimitris who will demand to know "Where you want-ta-go, what to do? You wanna-go-round island or over to Dokos?" The choice is yours!
Imagine as you head out of port, that Dimitri's equally hospitable wife, Dimitra, will show you where everything is, including the safety equipment, inflatables, snorkels and masks which they have onboard for your extra pleasure. And of course, she'll show you where the ice-barrel with the included refreshments are so you can just help yourself when you need a refill.
Imagine diving and swimming in turquoise bays that you can moor in as you like. Imagine cruising at your preferred pace along the coast to find just the right spot for lunch. Imagine the excitement if you see dolphins as they 'porpoise' along the gulf!
Dimitris takes charge of the meat or fish BBQ at lunchtime to go with the tasty mezes, salad and fruit that Dimitra brings to the table for you. Imagine the sizzling and the smell of the grill tempting your tastebuds, your stomach reminding you that all this lazy, sun-drenched pleasure has made you famished.
And I am sure you can imagine more of the same after lunch. A time to top up your tan on the comfy beds, retreat to the shade to read a book or indulge in a siesta. Perhaps one of your group will gently pluck a guitar melody to accompany the hushed lapping as the sea nudges the hull.
Imagine heading back to Hydra port with your skin tingling and the taste of the sea on your lips at the end of a glorious, idyllic day.
Now stop imagining, turn it into a reality as soon as possible! Contact Dimitris and Dimitra to book your next must-do Hydra adventure.
Enjoy the delights of heading out to sea with a group of friends to explore Hydra's natural coves, to dive into crystal clear sea, to sunbathe and to enjoy a freshly prepared BBQ lunch cooked for you onboard.
